Premier League club Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement with Mauricio Pochettino to be their next manager. 

According to BBC Sport, the 51-year-old former Tottenham boss is expected to take the role at the end of this season. The Argentine will become the sixth full-time manager at Stamford Bridge in the last five years.

Former Chelsea and England legend Frank Lampard is currently in charge of the squad. He accepted the role of interim manager following the sacking of Graham Potter in early April.

Todd Boehly’s team has endured a spell of just one win in the last 11 matches, including eight defeats. They are currently languishing in 11th spot in the table.

All chances of qualifying for European football next season appear to be well out of their reach now. Their hopes of a successful Champions League run came to an abrupt end at the hands of Real Madrid in the quarter-final stage.

Pochettion was the favourite to land the Chelsea job after former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann turned down the opportunity to replace Potter.

He has been out of work since the summer of 2022 after parting company with Ligue 1 giants PSG. Prior to managing Spurs, Pochettino was in charge at Southampton. In March of this year, he rejected an offer to rejoin Tottenham after they fired Antonio Conte.
